    Re: What kind of keyboard do you use?

    I've got a Qpad MK-50 mechanical (MX Reds). I was using a dirt cheap keyboard before I decided to treat myself and see what all the fuss was about. So far I'm pretty satisfied with it. As for my...

    Re: Web Developers: Share Your Setup

    When I was using Windows I used Notepad2 and thought things couldn't get any better. Now, if you put me in front of a Windows machine to do web developing I'd go insane :)

    Re: Xubuntu Appreciation Thread

    I switched a few months ago as yet another Gnome 3 / Unity refugee. After trying a few alternative DE's I settled with Xfce, set it up like my old Gnome 2 desktop and I've been a happy user. I really...

    Poll: Re: Thunderbolt-Useful or Not

    I'm not sold on Thunderbolt either. Do we really need yet another cable?

    As I understand, it's basically an external PCIe slot. I suppose a potential use for it could be to finally be able to...
  5. Re: Microsoft forces fragmentation - DirectX 11.1 exclusive to W8

    There are also other programs like IE and WMP that were limited to certain versions of Windows, as well as games like Age of Empires III and Halo 2 (both produced by MS, funny enough). I wonder if...

    Re: Thunar Tabs (They're a comin')

    This is excellent news. The lack of tabs was a deal breaker when I moved to Xfce and after trying other FM's I held on to Nautilus and am currently using Nemo.

    I'll definitely be looking forward...

    I used Audacious for a long time but recently switched to Exaile.

    I don't have a huge music collection so never saw the need for a fully decked out jukebox application. I just scroll through my...
  8. Re: A petition to the Gnome Developers : Make Gnome Customisable Out of the Box again

    I wouldn't bother if I were you. If Linus Torvalds himself couldn't change their minds then I doubt there's much us mere mortals can do.

    I suggest moving to another DE. I switched to Xfce and it...

    Re: Are you ready to fork out $40 for windows 8

    No thanks.

    I only recently (and reluctantly) upgraded my XP partition to 7 (and before that, I tearfully said goodbye to Win2000) just to make sure future games will run fine and make the most of...
  10. Re: Not a slice, I want the whole Raspberry Pi ...

    I ordered mine on the 6th of June, along with a case, power lead and an 8GB SD Card with Debian pre-loaded. The total came up to around 50. I'm still eagerly waiting.

    Main comp: Ubuntu 11.04 / Windows 7. Windows is just for games.
